While greeting the archbishop the dean of the parish f. Hiennadzi Kucharevič highlighted that the holiday of God’s mercy is special to the parish, where the NAtional Sanctuary of God’s Mercy is being built: “We all are on the frontline in a spiritual struggle taking place every minute and we have to be armed with God’s Mercy”.

In his sermon Metropolitan Kondrusiewicz reminded that mercy is the main manifestation of God and called the congregation “to bear God’s Mercy in the world that is often full of egotism”.

“The idea of God’s Mercy is represented in the Icon of God’s Mercy: God comes to us, He doesn’t forget us. While coming, He points at His heart, from which two rays are radiating, His right hand is raised and it blesses everybody, good ones and evil ones equally. His hand seems to be held in the gesture of absolution”.

After the Holy Mass the Minsk-Mahiliou archdiocese had been devoted to Merciful Jesus and a joint prayer for God’s Mercy had been read.
